Tanzania's minerals commissioner Paul Masanja said the fourth Arusha Gem Fair, being held this week, was a culmination of the 2009 Mineral Policy that seeks to promote the country’s ambitions of becoming the hub for gemstones in Sub-Sahara Africa.
He also said the Tanzanian government intends to “hasten” the contribution of the gemstone industry to socio-economic development of the country.
